Kathleen A. Lawrence, Communication and Media Studies Department, recently received word that her poem, “The Nonpareils: As Told by the Woman in the Gingerbread House,” has been nominated for a prestigious Pushcart Prize. Wikipedia describes the Pushcart Prize as “an American literary prize published by Pushcart Press that honors the best ‘poetry, short fiction, essays or literary whatnot’ published in the small presses over the previous year.” Lawrence’s poem originally was published in Star*Line, the print magazine for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association. “The Nonpareils” is a retelling of the well-known German fairytale by the Brothers Grimm titled Hansel and Gretel from the perspective of the witch, or homeowner. This is the second Pushcart Prize nomination she has received.
